    It seems like every time we turn around we hear about another facebook info snafu. By now many of us are aware to the fact that some of us do not use our real name or share any info. But after reading this article ( Facebook sharing your phone number sucks, but you gave it to them willingly | Android Central) from Jerry over at Android Central it brought up a few questions.

    1) Are the users to blame (just because you didnt read the fine print in the TOS) should that be enough to excuse FB for their security slip?

    2) Should carriers be held responsible for pre-installed apps like facebook (In other words if I install the app from the market is one thing but if when i turn my phone and set it up and fb pops up that is another) ?

    3) Should this be a concern to any one especially when 2 or 3 decades ago you could just pick up a phonebook and find name, phone number, and in some cases addresses?

    4) Has this stopped you or changed the way you use social media?
